Welcome to Alagna Valsesia Ski Resort

Old world rustic charm meets big mountains is one way to summarise Alagna, a traditional Italian village at the base of the huge Monte Rosa massif. This is skiing and riding for the ambitious and adventurous – the descent from the top of Passo Salati back to the village (black-red) is 1,700m alone. The ski area, numbering some 200km of pistes, is spread over three valley systems 20km apart, great for those who like to explore, and the views are spectacular. The freeride terrain is limitless with some of the best off-piste in Italy. Back in town, the old wooden chalets and traditional vibes give the feel of a cosy Alpine resort.

Best time to ski in Alagna Valsesia

With skiing up to almost 3,000m, Alagna is not a resort where you need to be glued to the snow reports before heading out. It’s as reliable as it gets, coming into condition early December with the slopes open from the middle of the month until mid April. That altitude brings some snow security, but it does also mean it can be chilly in December and January so you may need to wrap up. Things warm up from February onwards with March and April offering the potential for great spring skiing, with great snow quality and bluebird days on the mountain.

Things to do in Alagna Valsesia

Alagna is much more than just a ski resort. It’s a rural mountain village offering fresh air, big views and an escape from the world. It’s part of a nature reserve and it’s not unusual to spot deer foraging in the woods. Besides skiing there’s a lot of winter hiking and mountaineering on offer. Ski touring is also popular and Alagna has the second oldest company of guides in Italy. There’s also several cross-country skiing tracks in the valley. In town there’s also an ice rink. When it comes to eating out there are a number of excellent restaurants serving traditional alpine cuisine with local wines to match.
